In 1848, a British confectioner, Tom Smith, pioneered a new way to sell sweets. Inspired by the Parisian tradition of wrapping bon bons in twists of paper, Smith began wrapping his confectionery in a similar way.
After adding a little ‘pop!’ to his invention, these wraps of sweets soon became the Christmas cracker. It was the late Victorian period before the sweets were replaced by a paper hat and small gift, and the modern Christmas cracker was born.
